A down week has caused the Buffaloes to fall out of both major basketball polls.
The Colorado Buffaloes basketball team has fallen out of both the Associated Press and Coaches polls, which were released on Monday.
Tad Boyle and company lost their first game of the season on Saturday, falling victim in a 76-69 road upset at the hands of the Wyoming Cowboys. The Buffaloes allowed five different Wyoming players to score in double digits as they gave up 50 points to the Cowboys in the second half.
Colorado was ranked at No. 19 in both polls last week, and although it has dropped out of the top 25, the Buffaloes are still receiving votes. Their 44 points in the AP poll places Colorado at No. 33, while 41 points in the Coaches poll is good for a spot in line at No. 28.
Aside from the lone loss, the Buffaloes also battled Texas Southern (1-6) to an 85-80 double overtime win on Tuesday. Their struggle with a team perceived to be weak may have also factored into dropping out of the top 25.
